    No phone in the box!!!I pur­chased one of these. Arrived on Fri­day. All excit­ed etc. Opened the box and every­thing was in the box apart from the hand­set. Get it sort­ed Amazon.Update 08/05 After wait­ing for 8 days and sev­er­al times con­tact­ing Ama­zon finaly I am going to get my refund. No apolo­gies, no expla­na­tions, no good­will ges­ture. There is your refund and shut up. I always had great ser­vice with Ama­zon but this time my expe­ri­ence was absolute­ly awful. I hope oth­ers will get their refunds too. So I am scared to order anoth­er one.Update 21/05 After wait­ing and think­ing found that this mobile phone reduced by £20 and thought let’s try again. Ordered on Mon­day and deliv­ered on Wednes­day. My heart was pump­ing real­ly fast while I was open­ing the box. I opened the Ama­zon box and found the mobile phone box was wrapped with clear plas­tic and I could breathe nor­mal. Yes I did this time receive the full thing. Great mobile for the price. Still ear­ly days but so far so good.Update 24/09. After using it long term I’ve dis­cov­ered that when mak­ing & receiv­ing calls and lis­ten­ing to What­sApp voice mes­sages the screen turns itself off and it’s a night­mare try­ing to end a call some­times it’s so bad I have to restart the device in order get the screen back on. I did a lit­tle research and I was­n’t alone. Appar­ent­ly it’s to do with prox­im­i­ty sen­sor which could­n’t be fixed with a soft­ware update. Also the cam­era was­n’t great. My 3 years old Moto g6 plus takes bet­ter pic­tures. It’s a speedy device though. So unfor­tu­nate­ly I had to send it back.

    Great phone, despite being priced cheap.Real­ly want­ed the Mi 11 but could­n’t jus­ti­fy the cost, then along came the Poco F3. Have to say it’s pret­ty impres­sive so far.Battery was­n’t so impres­sive to start with, but then new phones do tend to drain a bit with all the back­ground set­up going on. Today how­ev­er the bat­tery seems to be doing much better.Phone feels real­ly pre­mi­um, would be mis­tak­en for some­thing that costs far more and is a com­plete powerhouse.Camera is also pret­ty impres­sive, plen­ty of set­tings to adjust to your lik­ing. Grant­ed it isn’t exact­ly a flag­ship cam­era, but it is far bet­ter than you might think.The screen is top notch, have it set at 120Hz, although not sure if my eyes notice the dif­fer­ence as dras­ti­cal­ly as most appar­ent­ly claim.Was real­ly wor­ried about the emp­ty box issue that is men­tioned in the review’s, so took the pre­cau­tion of video­ing the unbox­ing, the actu­al phone box should have a pro­tec­tive cel­lo­phane like wrap­per, which mine did. But it’s advis­able to film the box it arrives in and all the way until you know the phone is present. Unlike­ly a sell­er issue, more so a prob­lem in cer­tain Ama­zon ware­hous­es, espe­cial­ly where their are temps or agency work­ers unfortunately.All in all though I got lucky. Great phone, great price and arrived on time. This phone is def­i­nite­ly rec­om­mend­ed, espe­cial­ly if like me you want some­thing at the top of the pro­cess­ing pow­er charts but don’t want to spend stu­pid mon­ey on some­thing that you are like­ly to replace in 2–3 year’s or pos­si­bly break. For any­one who buys their phones out­right with­out going the con­tract route this is the phone, unless you do real­ly, real­ly need a more pow­er­ful cam­era. Say­ing that you could buy this phone and buy a ded­i­cat­ed cam­era that is bet­ter than a phone cam­era for less than some­thing like an iPhone or Sam­sung anyway.Will report back more when owned longer. As for the stand­by bat­tery drain I can con­firm that is fixed, I lose 3% overnight. Also the report­ed screen dim­ming issue is only real­ly an issue with Gen­shin Impact which I haven’t played. Have played a few games though and temps don’t seem to rise what­so­ev­er and no dimming.

    Pleas­ant­ly sur­prised!!!Great high spec smart phone for the mon­ey. I bought the Poco F3 to replace my Huawei P20 Pro which I’d dropped & dam­aged the OLED dis­play. Only hav­ing a cou­ple of months to go on my con­tract & want­i­ng to move away from Huawei I was look­ing for a decent 5G SIM free phone that was­n’t going to break the bank. I’d always pre­vi­ous­ly gone for flag­ship phones on con­tracts but no longer want to be tied to a cost­ly con­tract. I had done a lit­tle bit of research & decid­ed to go for a Google Pix­el 4a, when I got the phone I was so dis­ap­point­ed it was small­er than I was expect­ing & felt very cheap com­pared to the Huawei I’d been using for the last few years. Need­less to say the Google Pix­el 4A went back. I start­ed doing some more research & watched some reviews of bud­get phones on YouTube. That is when I came across Xiamoi. I’d nev­er heard of them pre­vi­ous­ly how­ev­er they were get­ting pret­ty good feed­back on line so was orig­i­nal­ly look­ing at the Mi10. I watched an unbox­ing video of the Poco F3 & it seemed to fit the bill per­fect­ly. So I went for it and pre ordered even got a dis­count which was even bet­ter. It came a day ear­li­er than expect­ed and I have to day I am not dis­ap­point­ed. I was a bit dubi­ous and was­n’t expect­ing much but have been pleas­ant­ly sur­prised. The goril­la glass front and back back makes it look like a pre­mi­um phone that real­ly does look smart and sleek. It’s got high spec­i­fi­ca­tions for the mon­ey I’ve found it real­ly quick and respon­sive & the dis­play is stun­ning. I com­pared to my hus­bands Sam­sung Galaxy Note 20 & I could hard­ly tell the dif­fer­ence. It actu­al­ly looks & feels like Sam­sung although this is glass not plas­tic. The only down side for me is the cam­era. Being used the cam­era on the Huawei P20 Pro, the cam­era on the POCO F3 isn’t great. How­ev­er the pic­tures are ok and can be edit­ed to cre­ate half way decent shots. There is also no wire­less charg­ing but it does­n’t both­er me, it comes with a fast charg­er that charges to 100% in about 45 min­utes. If you are look­ing for a decent phone but don’t have the mon­ey to spend on a expen­sive brand this is a great alter­na­tive. Only had it just over week & real­ly can’t fault it.

    Amaz­ing phone, when you even­tu­al­ly get one!I did ini­tial­ly receive a box with no device inside it. Heartaching­ly dis­ap­point­ing, how­ev­er Ama­zon were quick to sort the issue and got a sealed device to me the next day. I’ve only knocked a star off for this reason.It looks like all the youtube review­ers and some review­ers on Ama­zon missed the includ­ed ear­buds, they are tucked in a lit­tle side piece of card­board next to the USB cable in the box. I must admit they weren’t easy to find in the pack­ag­ing. They’re not the best, but they’ll do as a nice back­up pair at least.The phone how­ev­er, is absolute­ly stun­ning. Flag­ship lev­el per­for­mance in most depart­ments. Every day use is a breeze. The screen, the speak­ers, the speed is just incred­i­ble espe­cial­ly at this price.I thor­ough­ly rec­om­mend this device, though maybe con­sid­er going direct to Xiao­mi if you can wait for the slow delivery.

    such a bar­gain, total­ly worth the mon­eyMy cowork­er rec­om­mend­ed this phone to me when I said i am look­ing for a mid-range phone as i do not care about most fea­tures of the phone except cam­era. Cam­era is pret­ty decent, I love the side fin­ger print read­er, so handy. sup­port google ser­vices, sys­tem is pret­ty fast. Thought it would be a down­grade for me since my last phone is one plus 7t, it actu­al­ly turned out to be fanci­er (for exam­ple 5G and screen recorder, side fin­ger print­er reader…other func­tions i have not explored yet). I guess the bar is pret­ty high for smart phones these days. Total­ly worth the mon­ey and i strong­ly recommend.

    EMPTY BOX!The phone I’ve even­tu­al­ly received seems great, I’d def­i­nite­ly rec­om­mend it. The val­ue for mon­ey is incred­i­ble when you con­sid­er it’s on a par per­for­mance-wise with flag­ship phones of pop­u­lar brands.HOWEVER: I orig­i­nal­ly received a pack­age a day after the expect­ed deliv­ery date con­tain­ing the Poco F3 box (which had clear­ly been opened as there was no plas­tic wrap­per) and no phone inside. Ama­zon imme­di­ate­ly sent a replace­ment the next day, but pay­ing £300 for an emp­ty box was pret­ty scary. This is clear­ly not an iso­lat­ed inci­dent as pre­vi­ous reviews indi­cate that the same thing has hap­pened mul­ti­ple times. If you look on eBay you can see box­less Poco F3 phones for sale, some­one should prob­a­bly look into that..

    Bar­gainHad the phone a few weeks. I don’t write too many reviews but through I would for the phone as every­one uses them all the time.Missing … No ear phone plug point (3.5mm jack) which is stan­dard for hi spec phones it seems iPhone etc but still a pain in the rear end. Why not out it on it costs pence too add and would be use­ful. Also does­n’t have wire­less charg­ing. For me, no issue, plug­gin in at night not too tax­ing and I plug it in the car for Android auto any­way so no issue.Good bits.Screen pic­ture is bril­liant, as good as the most expen­sive at least to the make eye for all prec­ti­cale rea­sons it’s brilliant.Games I’m. It sure nor­mal stuff is fine with no issues, if you want to use it like an Xbox then you need to read some­one else’s review.Work stuff teams, Microsoft XL, word etc all bril­liant run real­ly well, Pow­er­Point is actu­al­ly work­able if you fin­gers are small enough or get exter­nal keyboard.Sound is very good very clear loud speak­er­sCall qual­i­ty is great although some­time switch­es to the main screen instead of black­ing it out dur­ing calls but that could just be me, had the issue before.Battery life seems very good, day and a half although full day is all most peo­ple need. Does also have bat­tery savers if you for­got to charge it and ultra bat­tery saver which will last for days on lit­tle charge and lets you text and call.Still has built in infra red con­trol which is a bril­liant add on lets you change TV chan­nel sound etc from your phone when you have lost the remote.Finger print on the pow­er but­ton, works bril­liant­ly no issue. Face recog­ni­tion works well usu­al­ly before I have got to the fin­ger print in the day.5g phone all be it I haven’t yet got the sig­nal but thought would be use­ful when travelling.All the con­nec­tion for ear­phones, car etc work very well very quick no mess­ing around.Camera seems very good, has all the slow Mo, pan, etc etc and you can ofocurse add what­ev­er size mem­o­ry car you like.In all unless you need wire­less charge it is every bit as good as the £1000 + lat­est I phone so why spend the mon­ey ?? Just buy and get a cheap con­tract sim only, you would be mad not too

    Awe­some phone, lack­ing very lit­tleIn an age where flag­ships are absurd­ly expen­sive, this phone hangs with the best for much less money.Design is sub­jec­tive, so I won’t talk much about this. I like the design, the night black colour is real­ly nice but picks up fin­ger­prints like crazy so I have a case on it. It comes with a clear case in the box, as well as a pre-applied screen pro­tec­tor. The cam­era mod­ule sticks out a bit, so a case is a good idea to pro­tect it. Goril­la Glass 5 on the front and back is also nice.The SD 870 is a great chipset, per­form­ing some­where between last year’s 865+ and this year’s 888 mean­ing any game on the mar­ket right now is going to per­form well at the high­est set­tings. With the con­tro­ver­sy sur­round­ing the 888’s ther­mal and effi­cien­cy prob­lems, the 870 seems to be the bet­ter pick. The inter­nal cool­ing sys­tem also ensures the phone nev­er gets too hot to touch dur­ing intense gam­ing ses­sions. The UFS 3.1 stor­age is also a notice­able boost in load­ing times com­pared to pre­vi­ous ver­sions, some­thing you won’t find in many oth­er phones at this price range.The AMOLED 120hz dis­play is great! Colour accu­rate, min­i­mal ghost­ing (to my eyes at least) and the 360hz touch response rate makes the phone feel real­ly respon­sive to the touch. It’s a Sam­sung pan­el, so qual­i­ty is only just under if not on par with their own flag­ships like the Galaxy S21. The punch-hole cam­era is fair­ly unob­tru­sive to UI ele­ments and watch­ing videos thanks to its small size and cen­tre placement.5G & 4G per­forms well with strong cell sig­nal and clear call qual­i­ty on both ends. I thought I’d need to turn off 5G for the bat­tery to last till the end of the day, but thank­ful­ly that was­n’t the case. I do a lot of web brows­ing, video watch­ing, social media, gam­ing and stream­ing music so I’d say I’m a mod­er­ate-to-heavy user, and this phone eas­i­ly lasts me the whole day with 30–50% left at around 4–6 hours of SOT (120hz & 5G on, 60–100% bright­ness). Charg­ing is fast, only tak­ing ~52 min­utes to charge ful­ly. Com­ing from a One­Plus 7T and iPhone 12, the bat­tery was notice­ably bet­ter than both and on those phones I had to turn down some set­tings. Also yes, the fast charg­er is includ­ed in the box.How’s the cam­era? It’s fine. Decent actu­al­ly. In good light you’re going to get very good pho­tos from the main sen­sor that are close to flag­ship qual­i­ty. Low light is much weak­er, but it’s good enough with night mode in a pinch and frankly no flag­ship phone right now takes night pho­tos I’d call ‘good’, just vary­ing degrees of ‘bet­ter’. The ultra­w­ide cam­era is gen­er­al­ly worse than the main sen­sor, and while it can take accept­able pho­tos I would­n’t use it over the main sen­sor. The telemacro cam­era is my sur­prise favourite of the cam­eras, com­bin­ing 2x zoom with a very close min­i­mum focus­ing dis­tance to allow for some cool macro shots. Qual­i­ty is again worse than the main sen­sor, but it allows for shots not nor­mal­ly pos­si­ble with a sat­is­fy­ing back­ground blur and when used right can deliv­er some fan­tas­tic pho­tos. Peo­ple who use macro cam­eras to mag­ni­fy small text on doc­u­ments will find this use­ful. The front fac­ing cam­era also deliv­ers pret­ty decent pho­tos, but won’t amaze any­one. I think the biggest com­pli­ment I can give the cam­era sys­tem is that I could rely on it to take the shots I want­ed every time, and did­n’t instant­ly want to put GCam on this.Video is a bit of a mixed bag due to the lack of OIS. At 1080p, video sta­bil­i­sa­tion is okay but not great and qual­i­ty is aver­age. At 4K, you lose the sta­bil­i­sa­tion and it becomes a shaky mess. I don’t tend to take many videos so this was­n’t a big deal for me, but I’d rec­om­mend stick­ing to 1080p60fps shoot­ing modes for this phone. Film­ing in ultra­w­ide and with the telemacro cam­era is also pos­si­ble, and the Pro Mode lets you fine tune the shoot­ing para­me­ters to over­come some of auto-mode short­com­ings and get the best shot pos­si­ble out of the sen­sors. There is also sup­port for shoot­ing in RAW at either the binned 12mp or full 48mp resolutions.How’s the audio? There’s no head­phone jack, but the includ­ed don­gle out­puts good qual­i­ty sound. There’s sup­port for pret­ty much every stan­dard high qual­i­ty and high effi­cien­cy audio codec, sup­port for high-res audio and blue­tooth con­nec­tions with my ear­phones has been rock sol­id. The stereo speak­ers have Dol­by Atmos and get very loud, with no notice­able dis­tor­tion until the 70% mark which is when it’s way too loud any­way. They sound pret­ty good, you’re not going to be dis­sat­is­fied with the speak­ers. If you real­ly want bet­ter audio, I’d rec­om­mend invest­ing in a prop­er external/bluetooth speak­er any­way since there’s only so much you can do with the small inter­nal space of a phone. Com­pared to my pri­or iPhone 12 that had a sim­i­lar speak­er set­up, I think these sound a lit­tle better.So what’s miss­ing? The head­phone jack, as pre­vi­ous­ly men­tioned, wire­less charg­ing (not a big deal for me, wired charg­ing is plen­ty fast and it’ll last the day and the next with­out need­ing a top-off), no SD card slot and what may be the biggest omis­sion for me, no offi­cial IP rat­ing for water and dust resis­tance. I sus­pect it has some lev­el of water resis­tance as the sim card tray has a rub­ber seal, but I would­n’t test my luck. There is an IR blaster, though.Software is anoth­er mixed bag. Per­son­al­ly, I like the design of MIUI and there’s a ton of use­ful fea­tures baked in that stock android does­n’t have. Sure, there’s ads on by default in some areas of the OS, but they can be eas­i­ly turned off with a sin­gle switch in the set­tings. At launch, there were many, many bugs and issues but a lot of them have been ironed out since. It’s been almost per­fect for me, with the excep­tion of a few issues with dark mode ren­der­ing text in some apps invis­i­ble (also fix­able in the set­tings on a per-app basis) and ges­ture nav­i­ga­tion not work­ing with third par­ty launch­ers. I under­stand this is an issue caused by Google and their lack of sup­port for them in recent ver­sions of Android, but it’s still frus­trat­ing. Thank­ful­ly, the default launch­er is actu­al­ly pret­ty cus­tomis­able and fea­ture filled so I’m not miss­ing Nova launch­er too much.Overall, this is a real­ly good phone that excels in near­ly every area. It has some omis­sions which I can get over, and the cam­era is only alright, but for the price you’re get­ting the full pack­age with no major down­sides. If you hate MIUI, installing a stock rom like the Pix­el Expe­ri­ence rom will get you that clean android expe­ri­ence. If you want to squeeze more out of the cam­era, there’s GCam avail­able. This phone puts the major flag­ships to shame for charg­ing so much mon­ey for the almost the same expe­ri­ence. No regrets hav­ing switched from an iPhone 12/OnePlus 7T com­bo and intend to car­ry only this phone going forwards.
